A happy Easter to all my blogging friends.

I was due to go away for the weekend but because snow is forecast we have decided to stay home. It will be a weekend of relaxing, yoga, rugby and eating chocolate. I love to eat my Easter egg with a cup of tea. How do you like to eat yours?

I hope to wear a dress on Easter Sunday I bought an Allegra hicks dress but I think I will be wearing it with tights.

Spring does feel like it is arriving the daffodils are out and there are lots of baby lambs.

I hope you have a lovely Easter with lots of chocolate and fun.

It is so terribly cold here the weather is coming from Siberia and wow it feels like it is.

I succumbed and bought a jumper in Avoca last week I was just fed up wearing the same clothes.
I love the little heart details.

It is so difficult to look both fashionable and very warm in these freezing temperatures here are a few outfits I like.

Even Rocky is wearing a coat.

Have a lovely week.

My husband has been off work this week and although we decided not to go away due to the awful weather we went on day trips instead.

My favourite was our visit to Powerscourt in Enniskerry County Wicklow. It is just so beautiful.

We had lunch in Avoca did some shopping in both the house and the garden centre which had the healthiest plants I have seen in ages.

We finished off the day with a drink in the Ritz Carlton.

I know some bloggers have been slightly disappointed when they have visited Dublin recently I could not recommend this area more .

I hope you have a great weekend.

I am longing to wear summer clothes and shed the layers of jumpers scarves and gloves that I seem to be wearing on a daily basis.

I love stripes and have even worn them in winter with my navy cords.

Here are a few of my favourites.

Have a lovely week.

First is the good picture the saying never work with animals is true so here are few of the many other photos I tried to take. I had almost given up an hour later. So pardon the quality.

I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day. I was spoilt and received lovely flowers and a lovely gift.

I have also been adding a few Easter bits and pieces to brighten up the house.

Have a great week . The sun is shining today may it continue.

Bearing in mind that the wet cold weather has returned I thought I would do a 'bling' interiors feature to cheer us up and add a little brightness.

Here are a few of my favourite looks at the moment. I am loving the brightness in these rooms coupled with the mirrored furniture.

Have a lovely weekend

Well I certainly did not manage to have a relaxing weekend.

I woke up on Sunday looking forward to a day pottering around the house and waved my husband and Rocky the dog off as they were travelling down the country to our holiday home. I received a phone call from my husband who was on the side of the motorway and he said he thought he was having a heart attack or a stroke and had called an ambulance.

I think you can imagine my stress and upset as I rushed with my son to meet them. As in all these situations there were funny moments such as when I arrived to see the ambulance with its lights flashing and out comes this little furry head .they had taken Rocky in to settle him. How your life can change in seconds. My husband is doing much better and they think that he moved suddenly and caused a blockage that resulted in him losing consciousness. More tests to go but hopefully he will be fine. But a relaxing weekend it certainly was not.

I just think this thought is so lovely and true.

So here is hoping for a fun week for all my blogging friends.

Well I saw my new niece yesterday she is gorgeous you forget how tiny newborns are and of course how lovely they smell brings back memories. This is the outfit I bought her. My sister does not like pink girly clothes so i thought this was perfect. I loved the trench coat and built the outfit around it. I so enjoyed shopping for baby clothes the choice is amazing.

I got her coat, jeans, striped top, headscarf, gloves and little runners. It was like a little French outfit.

I am still waiting for these trousers from boden I ordered in January and still have not received them yet. I love the colour but they are obviously a popular choice.

I hope to have a lazy Saturday maybe breakfast in bed and read a book.

Have a lovely fun weekend.
